Giovanni Corino

Annunziata, La Morra,
Barolo, Piemonte, Italy

About the producer

The Giovanni Corino winery masterfully crafts exquisite, velvety wines sourced from prime locations within La Morra's prestigious Annunziata district, where the family proudly possesses two of the region's most exceptional crus. Following the footsteps of many other producers, Celeste Corino relocated with his wife and children to La Morra in 1952 to work as a sharecropper. Continuing in the family tradition, his son Giovanni dedicated himself to viticulture, gradually acquiring the majority of the vineyards that now form the foundation of the estate. In the mid-1980s, Giovanni's son, Giuliano, the current proprietor, joined the family business.

While Giovanni had primarily focused on grape sales, Giuliano was determined to transition to producing and bottling his own wine. Embracing the innovations and techniques of the Barolo revolution, it has taken Giuliano numerous vintages to refine his approach and truly capture the distinctiveness of Nebbiolo from his esteemed vineyard sites.
